Letters: What is Dave thinking about?

Dear editor,

Taxpayers money used to bail out Fusion after years of dreadful performance in Bedford and nationwide where its performance rating is 95% BAD!

What is Dave thinking about?

He has rewarded the abysmally performing Fusion a fortune out of Bedford’s taxpayers’ coffers.

He must see that Fusion’s performance is abysmal.

The management team of Fusion pays themselves a fortune with the CEO getting almost £1/4 million.

Has Dave asked Fusion to economise? Doubtful.

Paying Fusion to continue to run our leisure facilities into the ground is simply a disgrace.
